Maple Breakfast Sausage


Homemade maple sausage made with ground pork and seasonings. Great cooked in crumbles for biscuits and gravy, or in patties for breakfast sandwiches or eggs Benedict. I like to premake a large batch and freeze the patties, then just take out a few the night before.

  • 2 ½ pounds ground pork

  • ¼ cup maple syrup

  • 1 ½ tablespoons chopped fresh sage

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • 2 ½ teaspoons fennel seed

  • 2 ½ teaspoons red pepper flakes

  • 2 ½ teaspoons garlic powder

  • 2 ½ teaspoons onion powder

  • 1 teaspoon anise seed

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Mix pork, maple syrup, sage, salt, fennel seed, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, onion powder, and anise seed in a large bowl until evenly blended. Shape pork mixture into small patties.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; fry patties in batches until pork is browned and no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
